“Pictures I Took Of ...” is a series of posts I run when I don't really feel like writing much, but I still want to do the right thing and chuck something up here. Enjoy.
Simply put, Pamukkale is a natural attraction in Turkey where you get to walk on and take pictures of chalky terraces filled with water that were formed by calcified hot springs. Meaning "cotton castle" in Turkish, Pamukkale is without a doubt one of the top tourist sights in all of Turkey and its chalky hills have been alive with people frolicking about in its pools for thousands of years. We were told to be expect to the underwhelmed by Pamukkale as there isn't as much water in the pools there as there used to be for some reason involving science, but I still managed to enjoy our one night there. The highlight for me was the ancient city of Hierapolis which was built atop the hot springs so the ancients could enjoy the healing powers of the springs and we happen to catch a really nice sunset while we were up checking out the theater. Enjoy.
